8. Chapter 8


The shrieking of girls was getting louder and louder as the screen in front of us showed 10 seconds till the show 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. As soon as the boys entered the stage girls were screaming so loud I could barely hear anything. Liam ran on stage first followed by Zayn, Louis, Harry, and then Niall. This concert had barely even started and it was already insane. As soon as the boys entered they started singing NA- NA, followed by an introduction and then the boys started playing I WISH, I couldn’t help but notice Harry who kept looking in my direction; he couldn’t possibly be looking at me? I thought. He was just looking over here; I’m not the only one over here. He’s obviously just looking around. Harry wasn’t acting like himself tonight though; even Louis would look over in my direction and then look at Harry. He gave him this look as if to tell Harry something but Harry would just ignore Louis, I can’t help but think this was all my fault, but what could I possibly have to do with any of this?

“Good Afternoon Toronto” Harry said once the song was over.  “You guys are absolutely incredible; we can here you from everywhere! So, basically when me and the boys first got together, we spent a lot of time at my house playing the guitar around the fire singing some of our favorite songs, and that is exactly what we are going to do for you right, now” the cheering grew louder as Zayn stood up and started singing I GOT A FEELING, this was the moment Niall was going to sing. The music went silent as Niall took a step towards the crowd.

When the crowd went silent Niall started speaking “Now, I have always said that I am waiting for the perfect girl to come along, the girl that I would like to call Mine, well today I realized that the perfect girl is here, tonight” the crowd cooed and one fan shouted.

“WHOS THE LUCKY GIRL!” Niall blushed as he started to play his guitar.

“The lucky girl will recognize this song” he said as he plucked the strings on his guitar and started to sing “Yeah, no more hiding I'm here to keep you safe, from the cold I hear you crying, now I'm pleading You don't have to walk this road all alone.” Niall took a hold of Sam’s hand and pulled her up on stage with him as he song the rest of the song. “So say eh oh, eh oh come on and just let it go I wanna stand with you against the odds Let me be the one that you can trust” Sam stood there in shock as Niall let out a little chuckle “Sam, I know we haven’t known each other for very long, but I was wondering if you would like to be my girlfriend?” he asked nervously.

“You better say yes to our little Nialler” Zayn shouted.

“You two are perfect for each other” Liam said

“Ya, you both eat the same!” Louis added. Sam glared at Louis who stuck his tongue out at her. Sam turned back to Niall with the digest smile on her face she nodded her head.

“Yes, I will” she said giving Niall a hug the crowd started cheering. Niall put his arm around Sam’s waist and guided her over to where the boys were sitting. Harry got up and said.

“Now there is one more special lady who we all had the honor to hang out with today.” Harry walked over to me and grabbed my hand pulling my up on stage just as Niall did with Sam not too long ago. He ushered me to sit down on the stool that one of the boys had brought over. “And as promised, our gift to you.” He said Liam and Louis stood up and joined Harry they were the only three who hadn’t sang yet Niall sat on his stool strumming his guitar as Liam and Harry started to hum. Louis stood in front of me and started to sing “When I look into your eyes It's like watching the night sky Or a beautiful sunrise There's so much they hold And just like them old stars I see that you've come so far To be right where you are How old is your soul?”

Harry joined in and started to sing “I won't give up on us Even if the skies get rough I'm giving you all my love I'm still looking up”

Liam chimed in with “And when you're needing your space to do some navigating I'll be here patiently waiting to see what you find”

All of the boys joined in singing “'Cause even the stars they burn Some even fall to the earth We've got a lot to learn God knows we're worth it No, I won't give up”

All off the boys took their seats but Harry who took my hand in his and finished the song with “I don't wanna be someone who walks away so easily I'm here to stay and make the difference that I can make” he gave me a smile and a wink. I could hear all of the girls in the crowd sighing and cheering once again

“Hailey, on behalf of all of the boys I would just like to say, we enjoyed having you and Sam hang out with us, you two are brilliant young girls and we hope you had a good time today, and always remember, we will never forget you” Harry said giving me a hug, soon enough Sam and the other boys had come over and we were in a big group hug, something I had always wished I was a part of.

Harry and Niall helped Sam and I off the stage and back into our spots so we could watch the rest of the concert. The girls around us were screaming and telling us how lucky we were.

A few more songs were played when finally MORE THAT THIS started. As soon as the song started Harry’s mood had change from being happy to how it was when he was singing I WISH. Liam had sung his solo and Harry was beginning his.

He caught my eyes and stared singing “When he opens his arms and holds you close tonight It just won't feel right Cause I can't love you more than Jake,” he said as he turned to look at a different spot in the crowd and continued with “Yeah When he lays you down, I'm might just die inside It just don't feel right Cause I can't love you more than this Can't love you more than this”

I stood there shocked “did he just say Jake?” I asked Sam

“It sounded like it, but then again, I’m not sure.” she said. Whatever, maybe I’m just hearing things.

I few more songs were played and I noticed how whenever Niall sang he would look a Sam, who was clearly making it obvious that she was looking at him as well.

After a few more songs were played Liam spoke up. “Thank you Toronto, you have been amazing”

Zayn joined in with “Thank you Toronto, you have been incredible, every single one of you so thank you.”

Harry then spoke up and said “Thank you so much for having us Toronto, it was a pleasure to play for you, thank you so much you have been a dream”

“We’re going to have to leave at some point boys” Louis said trying to act like the older more responsible one of the group.

“BYE!” the boys all shouted as they ran off stage. Soon after Sam and I were escorted back stage to the boys dressing room.

“You guys were amazing” Sam said as she walked over and sat on the couch next to Niall who put his arm around her.

“What did you think Hailey” Liam asked me touching my arm lightly

“Oh, ya it was great!” I said snapping out of the thought I had earlier, why had Harry said Jake? Did he say Jake? What was with the song the boys sang to me at the campfire? What was going on? I was so confused. “Harry?” I questioned

“What’s up babe?” he asked.

“When you were signing more than this, did you say Jake’s name?” I asked

“I don’t know what you’re talking about” Harry said putting his nose to the air and crossing his arms over his chest.

“fine,” I said raising my eyebrow at him “I just won’t talk to you than” a said folding my arms over my chest like he had done and faced Louis, who was looking at the two of us in shock, all of the boys were now looking at us including Sam. Harry grabbed my elbow and dragged me to the other room.

“Look, I’m sorry it slipped out, I didn’t mean for it to happen, honestly! It’s just the minute I looked into your eyes all I could picture was you being with Jake, the fact that Jake will always have you” he said.

I gave Harry an apologetic look “I’m sorry” I mumbled “you just got me all worked up, I didn’t know why you would say that, but really, why would you say that?” I questioned

“Well why are you with a jerk like him anyways?” he asked

“Because, I have known him forever Harry, you don’t understand, and you never will!” I said “Wait, why would you call him a jerk? You don’t even know him!” I said now getting angry, how could he say that?

“I do know him!” he said starting to shout.

“How?” I questioned

Harry rubbed the back of his head messing up his curls as he bit his lip. I stared at him waiting for an answer. “Well?” I asked

Harry looked at the ground and started to speak “I… err… I may have answered your phone when you were talking to Niall” he said putting his hand in his head “Jake and I talked, well Jake talked, and he’s not a nice guy Hailz!” he said tears started to fill my eyes as Harry wiped a loose one away “Hailey I just don’t want you to get hurt.” He whispered trying to blink back tears.


“Hailey, I’m sor-“

“No Harry, I love Jake, you will never understand that” I said shaking my head “you won’t understand” I said as I walked off wiping away the tears that were falling from my face Harry grabbed my shoulder and spun me around, he had tears streaming down his face as tried to say sorry but no words would come out. I rolled my eyes “Jerk.” Was all I could say to him, I shook his hand off of me, I didn’t want to walk into the other room were the boys were but I opened the door to see all the boys sitting down staring at the door I had just come through

“Are you OK” Liam asked as I walked passed them through the other door to the hallway, slamming the door behind me and sinking to the ground.
